Jerea sponge?

Bericht door fifbrindacier » 01 mei 2021, 20:20

Hi, that's a long time since I posted on this forum, so, I hope you're all well despite that COVID pandemy.

I need confirmation or infirmation about the identification of this Cenomanian sponge, found in a cultivated field in the department of Charente. I thought that could be a Jerea, what do you think?

It is 6 centimeters high and 5 wide.

Cenomanien?
Je pense c'est Campanien.

The photo is too blurred to decide whether this is a sponge.
It might also be a simple stone.

Best wishes,
Oliver

@Oliver, although sponges are quite difficult to determine by pictures,
I'm quite sure it's a Jerea clavata

@Tom: No doubt that you are sure, but better pictures would help
the other forum members to compare this fossil with their own finds.

Thank you all for your inpunt, I'll try to take better pics but I currently only have my old phone.

Cheers,
